Indie

Spoon

When: April 5-6 2010

One of indie rock's more original and gifted institutions, Spoon was birthed back in 1993 by Austinites Britt Daniel and Jim Eno, whose musical inclinations have never exactly screamed Texas. Maybe it's the Anglo and Teutonic influences — the group named itself after a song by Krautrock icons Can — or maybe it's just because Austin's weird. In any case, 2010's self-produced Transference continues a minimalist approach to melodic pop that doesn't skimp on hooks or harmonies. You can catch them for $25 at 8 tonight or tomorrow at the Ogden Theatre (935 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, ogdentheatre.net). Openers Deerhunter and Micachu & the Shapes round out this 16-plus event. — Bill Forman
